By now, you should have a domain name in mind and know if it is available. In this article we will show you how to set up your hosting and remember we told you we will get you a free domain name. Alright, so you ready? Let’s get started. Head over to AceHosts.com. There are many hosting companies out there and you have lots of choices. Some of them are cheap, some are good. Ace Hosts is good and inexpensive. We personally use them and that is why we’re recommending it to you. Remember, this is the storefront for your business. You need a good and reliable hosting service. We like Ace Hosts because they are not only good, but their helpdesk is amazing. They are there to help you every step of the way, so use the link below this article and sign up for hosting from them. Now when you click on a link, it’ll take you to this page, which is their home page. We will show you a way to get a free domain name right now. If you sign up for a yearly account with Ace Hosts, you can get a free domain name, so if you’re just starting out or are tight on cash than this is a great way to go. All you have to do when you get to this page is click on the button down below saying, sign up.
Now, once you’re here, type in the domain name that you have decided upon and check its availability. Then they’ll take you to this page where you have to enter your billing information. Now, you already know that the blog name is available in this case. It gives you a confirmation that yes, the page domain name is available. You scroll down, enter your first name, last name, email address, all that other good stuff, your credit card information. If you’re going to go with PayPal, click on the PayPal button and then in the dropdown box you get three choices. You can either sign up for one year, two years, or three years of hosting with them. On the catch here is that if you sign up for one year, when you renew your billing, next year, you will not get the introductory price. You will get the standard $8.95 per month price, so that’s the only thing you have to keep in mind.
All the prices are great, whichever. When you sign up for that, depending on how much cash you have available. Now the one year is a great. The two year offer is great. Then you’re locked into the monthly intro price for two years or even three years is great, so whichever one you want, go ahead and sign up for that. As long as you have signed out for at least one year of a hosting service, you will get the free domain name, so that would be good. Down below, if you scroll down, you will see a couple of options that are checked. You can uncheck them if you don’t want them. There’s a domain privacy option that you can get for $9.95 a year. There’s also site protection and site backup options that may be checked by default so you can uncheck them if you don’t want them, but do feel free to go through all of these options and take a look, see if you want it or not, and then you come down here and click on checkout.
Now, once you click the checkout button, they will create your account and they will email all your login details. Then use a log in information to get inside your account. So go ahead and complete this step. Information that you get from the email Ace Hosts sends you, will allow you to log into your account, and go to the control panel page where you can proceed to install WordPress on your site.
